To be so clinical (6 goals in five Serie A starts) at such a young age is highly impressive, though there are still areas in his game which could use some improvement: last campaign he won 0.5 aerial duels (per WhoScored) and completed just 6.5 passes per game on average.
This shows that while Kean may benefit from the service he’d get from players such as Gylfi Sigurdsson, he may struggle to bring the likes of Richarlison and Bernard into the game, which could cause frustration for Everton.
With these statistics in mind, it could be worth taking a risk on somebody who has not got the complete all-round game to try and force goals into the side, even if it comes at the slight expense of a more rounded forward.
Everton should do all they can to ensure Moise Kean is heading to Goodison Park, as it would be a massive signal of intent considering his status as a wonderkid (Paolo Bandini described him as one in his Guardian column back in March) at one of Europe’s elite clubs.
Everton need a striker who will regularly put the ball in the net (they scored 11 less than Manchester United and the top six has previously been spoken of as a target by Marco Silva) so while it could be a risk to bring someone in who doesn’t have much first-team experience, Kean’s prolific nature in front of goal suggests he is more than worth pursuing.
